Took a Diawl Bach chassis and added a denser hackle; at this size, the scud hook gives me more gap than a traditional hook would. This could play on a Montana tailwater next spring; change of pace from all the Lightning Bugs and Green Machines.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #16
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - hackle brown
rib - Holoshimmer red (doubled)
body - peacock herl
hackle - hen brown

Regards,
Scott
